This video reflects, pretty much exactly, how we imagine Adam Duritz lives his life: in a sweet Manhattan apartment that August bought, bathed in flattering “Long December”-esque lighting all day and night, walking around the apartment staring at Polaroids and finding new and poetic ways to hate himself. Oh yeah, and also: hurting a different pretty lady every time we look in. Pretty much, right? OK! You’re ready for the new video.
Alright, that his house came with DVD-quality reality-pausing was, in fact a surprise. That Adam had a shot in the vid with his name scrawled on an envelope (“Adam”!) most definitely was not.
